Anyone who has taken the time to read some of the previous posts on this blog will have surely noticed how many conspiracy-theory-related comments have been shown here. The reason for this is that Youtube has been, and probably always will be, a haven for conspiracy theories. This is because every muppet with access to Windows Movie Maker is an expert who has just uncovered the truth. Throw in a few insinuating photographs, a chilling soundtrack, some cherry-picked quotes and you have yourself a legitimate truth-exposing video. Morons will flock to it, swallow it whole and give it a five star rating. Your job is done. You are now officially an arsehole.
This video is the first part to a section that I intend to base purely on video content. Ladies and gentlemen: Meet Mark. Mark is a Youtube user. When not shopping for fashionable Superman t-shirts, Mark likes to make videos and put them on Youtube. One might call Mark a vlogger. One might also call Mark a muppet. You see, Mark is a conspiracy nut. He thrives on conjecture. It's his lifeblood. It helps him escape the boredom of everyday life. He visits conspiracy-theory-driven websites such as Infowars.com and then forces himself to swallow as much bullshit as humanly possible. Rumour has it that Mark's mother once found him choking to death on a conspiracy theory. He should really learn to chew.
Firstly Mark, if you're going to persuade all into thinking that you're the one who delivers the truth, you had best drop the spooky intro music. Secondly, just because you read something on the Internet; that doesn't automatically make it true. Normally, people usually read something, question it, question the source they're getting this information from and THEN choose whether to believe it or not. All you did was quote something speculative that you read somewhere on the Internet, before wasting the rest of your time musing over what people's reactions would be. I like the way you translated "Swine Flu Emergency" into "National Emergency". Great job Mark! A+.
